Poem: Silhouettes


I've made a video with drawings, photographs made through the years and a poem - Silhouettes, written this year. So, here it is now, hope you like it.



"our feet move as million lights go on and off
in our bedrooms; where we keep each others
secrets; there are still corners of our skin,
that we haven't yet discovered; and it's strange
how your whole body fits on the windowsill
                our eyes live a life of their own
judging all of our shells; with dreams in our
hands, yet still looking tiny to the world; our
lungs keep count of the steps we've taken;
stretching the hands above our heads; making
flying birds with our fingers; few inches into
the air they reach, makes us feel closer to the universe
                our bodies lie naked in the soil
dancers born between the night and day;
catching the feeling of infinity on wide
open plains; there's no need to feel shame;
after all, the sun doesn't make any difference in
                silhouettes between your body and mine"

  4. Beautiful. The feeling of being together and that bit of sensuality is very well worded. And the ending is really nice... it doesn't make any difference... in the end, we reflect the same. :-)

  6. Natasa, enjoyed the sensuality of your poem! It is filled with beautiful lines. "there are still corners of our skin, / that we haven't yet discovered" and "catching the feeling of infinity on wide / open plains" are my favorite. And it is a good feeling when we have "dreams in our hands".

  8. Natasa, what a beautiful video you produced to accompany your poem. Your whole project here made me smile. I am very impressed with your talents. As Gabriella said...I feel about your poem as well...I enjoyed the sensuality of it, and the obvious caring between two people. Your choices of words just perfect.
